Frans van Mieris -Brothel Scene

c. 1658-1659

Royal Picture Gallery Mauritshuis, The Hague

Another meisterwerk by one of our favourite Leiden Masters of the Dutch Golden Age.

I was lucky enough to see some of his works in Den Hagg, years ago.

Seems to me, however, that the only one getting laid in this brothel is the frisky dog in the middle foreground! Maybe it’s a doggy whorehouse!

I was in a Dutch brothel once (totally by accident and very briefly!) and I don’t remember it looking anything like this. I was stoned as a motherfucker though on Super Silver Haze, so my recollection cannot be relied upon!

As a further aside, where are the nasty mafia-type pimps? Where are the simian psychotic bouncers?
